Could be improved Pros: Toe cap shines well after the work is put in Leather is holding up Cons: Poor foot support (I bought some insoles to help) Snap closures don't match up so I'm not able to button both snaps.

Best quality paratrooper boot currently available Although these are the best of the paratrooper boots that are currently on the market in terms of the quality and thickness of the leather I am a bit disappointed in that the snap enclosure are very fragile and tore after about a year. They are a bit rough on the heel and took me about 6 months to break in where I had calluses the size of quarters ($0.25) on my heels. I found the toe box a bit narrow and low but I love the look of these boots. Zipper gets stuck occasionally but the weakest point is the snap enclosures, they will tear off eventually. Best paratrooper boot out there, zipper and snap enclosure are the weak points. Laces are also pretty weak and will need replacement in a year. Although I'm a bit disappointed, these boots at better than all versions from various competing brands.

Amazing Quality I've had my paratroopers for about 3 years now and they have never once failed. I work a very physically demanding job that also requires my feet to be relatively protected, and they do that job perfectly. When I'm not working, I'm hiking, camping, or logging, and they work great for all of these applications. They fit perfect right out of the box, and only require a fairly short break in period. The polish on the heel and toe are very shiny, but can wear out if you do not polish them and buff them regularly, never the less, very satisfied with these boots.

Best boots I ever bought! These boots lasted me almost a decade of daily wear. They're comfortable, light but sturdy, durable, and sharp looking. These stood up to heat, cold, rain, snow, swamps, sand, and all manner of abuse, and after all that, they're only now beginning to get damaged. Buy these boots. They'll last longer than you will!
